Obama phone

Barack Obama’s dad came from Kenya, and as a result he’s a popular figure in the African country. It’s to see the world’s first oPhone, which will sell for just $30 through local carrier miPhone.

The specs don’t offer much in the way of change: it’s a dual-band GSM handset in “Black + Obama colour” and has enough memory to hold 100 SMS messages and 300 phone book entries. It has an FM radio, a couple of games, and basic calc, calendar and other basic features.

    Honestly, it was less than ten years ago that all that for $30 would’ve blown our minds.

    Not a statement for or against our next president, just a “Holy S…” moment that just hit me.
